BREAKING NEWS: Iran Launching Massive Arrests Of Evangelicals
BosNewsLife ^ | Saturday, October 13, 2012 (9:15 pm) | S.J. Bos

Posted on 10/14/2012 8:51:31 PM PDT by Milagros

There is mounting concern about reported massive arrests of Christians in Iran. Massive arrests of evangelical Protestant Christians, including many former Muslims, are reported in Iran, with men and women being dragged to prisons across the Islamic nation.

"We have learned that at least 100, but perhaps as many as 400 people, have been detained over the last 10 days," ...

Speaking from an undisclosed location, he told BosNewsLife late Saturday, October 13, that forces of the feared intelligence service, who he called "Iran's Gestapo", broke up worship services in Esfehan, Shiraz and Tehran areas.

"They are of several movements. But it has become clear that Protestant Christians are now viewed as enemy number one of the state," Khandjani said. "We need urgent prayers," he added when asked what believers need most.

A religion that feels it must intimidate is no religion.

This is beginning to sound more and more like the Ezekiel Option.

Prayers up for my evangelical Christian brothers and sisters. They must remain strong; God is in control. He has their backs.

Islam is a political system disguised as a religion. period.

I’m sure Barry will come out and condemn them for their acts - of hatred, violence, violating human rights - against Christians. the “reprehensible, disgusting” acts.... would never be tolerated by an Obama administration :/

In some Muslim countries conversion is a death penalty offense. I hope Iran does not become one.

Believers have authority in Jesus name to ask to rebuke this evil,

“Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil as he disputed about the body of Moses, dared not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke you.” Jude 1:9

I’ve never witnessed spiritual warfare at work like we’re seeing now,

Anyone who hasn’t been on their knees praying, its past time to start,

for those also in Egypt and Syria,

“And it shall come to pass in that day, that the great trumpet shall be blown, and they shall come which were ready to perish in the land of Assyria, and the outcasts in the land of Egypt, and shall worship the LORD in the holy mount at Jerusalem.” Isaiah 27:13

You need guns and soldiers as much as you need prayers. These people will not stop killing, maiming, hurting destroying, and enslaving until they are stopped physically. This is not to denigrate prayer rather it reflects the current physical reality. I pray daily but it will take more than prayer to stop these people.

History has a nasty habit of wanting to repeat itself.

With all my heart I hope that “ANOTHER” nuclear exchange in that region will never materialize and hopefully the Jews will see to it that there will be no repeat of such an event but just in case it does it certainly would not be the first time for this to happen as the last nuclear exchange in that region took place on the Sinai Peninsular approximately 4000 years ago or 2024 BC and found its way in to history books as the event which became known as Sodom and Gomorrah.

The winds carry the radioactive cloud to Sumer. People die a terrible death , animals perish, the water is poisoned, the soil become barren. Sumer and it’s great civilization lie prostrate. Its legacy passes to Abraham’s son he begets-at age 100 - a legitimate heir: Isaac

And by the way, the remaining scars from this first nuclear exchange in that region can still be seen from a satellite photograph.

The question remains will mankind learns from its mistakes or are we condemned to repeat them until we learn from history.

You are very quick. What a reasonable observation. That makes sense.

This story implies there were no Catholics rounded up. Hmmm.

I’m a little shocked 400 Americans are still in Iran running free st all, Christian or not.

Our prayers are with these dear ones, and all who are suffering for our Lord Jesus. God be with them in power and grace.

That is correct. The very life of Mohammad and his family was a war plan.

This continues to be the best 45 minutes you can possibly spend to understand just how bad the last 1400 years of Islamic conquest has been and why we never do anything about it:

We are blessed to live in the western continents of the world, if for no other reason that we have been ignored by Islam for the last few hundred years. That’s changing rapidly though.

Every time Achmadimajob comes to America, we allow him to spew his filth and then return back to Iran to continue murdering his own people and to feverishly fulfill his plans to wipe out Israel and the USA.

Is this a great country or what?

Maybe our naive funneling OUR money to the UN and to the MuslimBrotherhood-Egypt, should become at east an issue on the debate?

“Forgot to add that (i)slam is just about as useful as socialism.”

Islam and socialism (communism, progressiveism, ect.) are the devil’s right and left hand at war with the Kingdom of God.

Islam is for theists who must believe in a supreme being, and socialism is for the die hard atheists. They partner in an attempt to usurp and replace the true God with a bogus one.

Allah is a false god, and socialism tries to replace God’s role in society with government.

And the young naive under 30’s think that America going the way of Islam isn’t such a bad idea; a sentiment I’ve heard among the gullible who have experienced most of their life through video games, partying, and cell phones. Boy are they in for a wakeup call.

It’s because most of them are being focused on us not them.

Not to worry, Oblahblah will just get on the phone with the Moolahs and Assahollas and work out some sort of deal, just to prove his foreign policy skills in time for the third debate.

Thanks for the thread, and gleeaikin, thanks for the ping. Hate to say this but am not surprised. iran is looking to gain favor in the moslem world. This roundup of Christians does it for iran. The trials will follow, and then I would rather not say. The moslem street is overjoyed, am sorry to say.

“And the young naive under 30’s...”

Most of the ones that have an idea about anything that is not right in front of their nose are merely “useful idiots”.

America’s re-education system is a giant Marxist moron mill that has pretty much wasted the minds a few generations now.
